What is super diverse, quite unknown and a genuine treasure chest for music lovers? We’re talking about Indian music. Together with Sarthak Shirke and Sagar Joshi, we dive into the world of Indian music via both a lecture and a mesmerizing concert.
What do you know about Indian music? Due to the vastness and diversity of India, Indian music encompasses numerous genres in multiple varieties and forms. It has a history spanning several millennia, and it developed over several geo-locations spanning the sub-continent. Music in India began as an integral part of socio-religious life and continues to play an important role in the lives of Indians. It's the intricate rhythms, soul-stirring melodies, and profound philosophies that define this musical tradition. In their lecture, Sarthak and Sagar will highlight the history and significant contributors, and they will try to explain the associated mathematics and science as well.
But what’s an evening about music without actual music? Therefore, Sarthak and Sagar will give a 30-minute concert showcasing the essence of Indian music. Get ready for a magical evening.
